￼￼￼￼December 2018 Preschool Press
￼￼￼￼Mrs. Julie’s Preschool 3s
Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner? Well the Preschool 3s class is ready for Santa and all the other fun things December brings. We will be talking about Santa and his Reindeers, Candy Canes, Gingerbread Men and the true meaning of Christmas. We will also introduce the letters J and K and reviewing all the letters we have learned so far this year.
LiteracyThe children will be introduced to the letters J and K by saying their sound and thinking of words that start with these letters. We will start to use Zoophonics to help learn the letter sounds. We will then review letters A to K before we go on our Christmas break.
MathWe will be counting jingle bells and sorting candy canes by color. We will also be recognizing numbers 1 – 10 on Gingerbread Men. The children will be matching bodies of Christmas characters to see what funny new characters they can make.
PhysicalFor Gross Motor we will be doing a Letter J Jump, Kangaroo Hops, Dance with Jingle Bells, and a Candy Cane Hunt. Our Fine Motor skills will consist of Rainbow Tracing our names, and painting red and green with Q-Tips.
ScienceThe children will be exploring with Jello sensory bags, taste candy canes, and play with jingle bells in playdough.
